Publisher's Summary

Rita Mae Brown and her feline coauthor Sneaky Pie Brown return with this 27th book in their best-selling Mrs. Murphy series, in which mysteries of past and present Albemarle County, Virgina, continue to converge. 

"Harry" Haristeen and her friends and animal companions pursue the threads of a mystery dating back to Virginia's post-Revolutionary past, introduced in A Hiss Before Dying, while their 18th century predecessors continue to struggle with the challenges of the fledgling country. Harry's new friendship with Marvella Lawson, doyenne of the Richmond art establishment, will lead her back to her own artistic and academic interests, providing both personal pleasure and creative fulfillment - and new clues to current crimes!

#27: Probable Claws is the 4th in a 4 book series

I have listened to almost all of this series in order and have just finished the last available book, #27. I feel it very important to let listeners know that 4 - from Tail Gate, Tall Tail, A Hiss Before Dying and Probable Claws should actually have one title followed by 1,2,3,4 as they are intricately connected. If you try to listen to anything out of order you will be lost.
Please go to the review for Book 24- Tail Gait - as I wrote it after I finished Probable Claws. It will give the complete review of all 4 books.

Disappointed

There was to much going back in time for an unconnected storyline. I found my mind wondering through this sections. Too little about Harry, her pets, friends and husband. Seemed like a short story with unrelated filler. As a long-term reader of this series by Rita Mae Brown I felt cheated.

Love the new puppy!

Rita Mae delivers again. Not only does she create a good story, she delivers a history lesson that is anything but boring. I love the mixture of fact and imagination. And speaking of love, I can’t wait to get my hands/ ears on the next story and see how much Pirate has grown.

Confusing

I think maybe it was just me and the time period in which I listened to this book. I have thoroughly enjoyed other books by this author but had a difficult time following the different time periods in this book.

Don’t Bother unless you have read the first one!

I had read other books by this author and still could NOT keep straight on which characters are animals and which are human. I am a horse lover, live on a farm and am passionate about my pets but still could not “get into” this one. Gave up less than half-way through.
